In "Heather has Two Textbooks," Malcolm A. Kline writes that while today's parents of public school children may feel besieged by alternative lifestyles, one public school teacher doesn’t think the literature available to them is diverse enough:
“It takes a lot of work to find books that include same-gender parents, step-parents, foster or adoptive children, or other nontraditional families as background in an adventure tale, a friendship parable, or a holiday romp; nontraditional families are either the topic of the story or, more likely, not included at all,” Willow McCormick writes in the summer issue of Rethinking Schools magazine. “When two-parent, heterosexual families are presented as the norm in story after story, near [year] in and year out, an insidious message is conveyed: Families that don’t conform to this structure are not normal.” (academia.org, July 4, 2014)
The lie is the father of violence
"(The lie) is the word, act, sign of cunning or silence which makes use of wiles to deceive (all who seek) truth....the attitude of the liar, who full of subtlety, audacity and at times cruel cynicism, misleads his neighbor into the quick sands of falsity. The use of the lie reveals the liar as a person of evil intentions. He who tells lies as a way of getting ahead lacks a love of truth (he or she is) a self-centered dissimulator, cunningly manipulating his fellowmen for his own evil purposes." (The Roots of Violence, Rev. Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., p.29)
According to the teacher, the two-parent, one male, one female marriage is insidious. Pushing aside her sophistry pretending to be rational discourse is the audacious self-righteous hypocrisy of the sovereign 'god-man,' a self-centered dissimulator who implies the evil concept that man has no immutable nature since he is not created but rather the product of evolution, hence always and ever “becoming.” Thus pointing out to people of evil intentions that there has never been such a thing as sodomitic marriage in history is superfluous since man’s nature is fluid because the nihilistic ‘god’ Evolution rolls on and on, changing the Bible, demolishing truth, purpose, meaning, norms, moral law, one man one woman marriage, national boundaries, Constitutional rights, gender, and all else.
This is the satanically inverted philosophy of violence and nihilism of America’s president, his cabinet and the amoral progressive ruling class of which they are members. It is also the philosophy of the Marquis de Sade, Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx and the Sophist Callicles in Plato’s ‘Georgias’ who declares:
“The fact is this: luxury and licentiousness and liberty, if they have the support of force, are virtue and happiness and the rest of these embellishments-—the unnatural covenants of mankind-—are all mere stuff and nonsense.” (Making Gay Okay, Reilly, pp. 31-32)
In other words, with a consensus of lies backed by the threat of violence, the Bible, the Christian Church, virtue, truth, marriage, gender, private property, your children, your humanity, and the Constitution become whatever God-hating agents of violence and the mobs in back of them want them to be from moment to moment.
What this has led to in England, said Nate Steuer of JeremiahCry Ministries, are buildings that once served as churches that are now museums, stores and even nightclubs, a strong belief in evolution and a strong homosexual-rights movement:
"They don't want to hear the gospel. The gospel is pressed down," said Steuer, and the homosexual-rights movement is so rooted in England that Christians are afraid to go "into the streets and preach," fearing what the LBGT community will do."

The Dark 'god' Evolution
"Rescue me, Lord, from evildoers; protect me from the violent, who devise evil plans in their hearts and stir up war every day.They make their tongues as sharp as a serpent’s; the poison of vipers is on their lips. Keep me safe, Lord, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from the violent, who devise ways to trip my feet. The arrogant have hidden a snare for me; they have spread out the cords of their net and have set traps for me along my path." Psalm 140
Evolutionary scientism has amply demonstrated itself as a virulently anti-human, pathologically destructive, demonically murderous worldview. Marching under its banner, in just the first eighty-seven years of the twentieth century, violent spirits who love evil and devouring words and breathe out slaughter and death brutally exterminated between 100-170 million un-evolved 'subhuman' men, women, and children in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.
In the Soviet Union, the Triune God-and-human hating man of violence, Vladimir Lenin, exulted that,
"Darwin put an end to the belief that the animal and vegetable species bear no relation to one another (and) that they were created by God, and hence immutable." (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9)
In other words, with the 'death' of the Triune God uninhibited violence against millions of people is allowable because they are no longer the image-bearers of the Triune God but rather products of evolution on a par with slime, weeds, slugs and rocks. Wearing the evolutionary "ring of power" Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death. He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species."
Fueled by hate, contempt and murderous rage it was Lenin who "decided who should disappear by virtue of having been condemned to the dustbin of history." From the moment Lenin made the "scientific" decision that the bourgeoisie represented a stage of humanity that the 'god' evolution had surpassed, "its liquidation as a class and the liquidation of the individuals who actually or supposedly belonged to it could be justified." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)
In Nazi Germany evolution resulted in gas chambers, ovens, and the liquidation of eleven million "useless eaters" and other undesirables.
Alain Brossat draws the following conclusions about the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and the ties that bind them:
"The 'liquidation' of the Muscovite executioners, a close relative of the 'treatment' carried out by Nazi assassins, is a linguistic microcosm of an irreparable mental and cultural catastrophe that was in full view on the Soviet Stage. The value of human life collapsed, and thinking in categories replaced ethical thought…In the discourse and practice of the Nazi exterminators, the animalization of Other…was closely linked to the ideology of race. It was conceived in the implacably hierarchical racial terms of "subhumans" and "supermen"…but in Moscow in 1937, what mattered…was the total animalization of the Other, so that a policy under which absolutely anything was possible could come into practice." (Black Book of Communism, p. 751)
With the total animalization of 'other' here in America millions of unborn humans have been aborted and late-term unborn babies brutally dismembered. Writing in, "New York Abortion Bill Allows Shooting Babies Through the Heart With Poison to Kill Them" Steven Ertelt reports that New York is already the abortion/murder capital of the United States, with practically no oversight of the industry. Throughout the second trimester, developing babies can be completely dismembered,
"... even when they can feel pain (by) pulling the baby out piece by piece until the mother’s uterus is empty. After the abortion, the abortionist must reassemble the child’s body to ensure nothing has been left inside the child’s mother." (LifeNews.com | 5/20/14 6:28 PM)
What is being demanded now for late-term abortions and will be legalized in New York by the abortion-expanding Women’s Equality Act, is the death of babies,
"... by sliding a needle filled with a chemical agent, such as digoxin, into the beating heart, before being delivered."
Then there is Wisconsin-based abortionist Dennis Christensen and his partner Bernard Smith who have performed 85,000 to 95,000 abortions in a 40 year period:
“So I see it as a calling, I guess,” Christensen said. “But I’ve been called, I’ve served and now I’d like to call someone else.” (Abortionist Who’s Killed 95,000 Babies in Abortions: “I See It as a Calling” Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com, 7/7/14)
Something "called him" to murder 95,000 babies, but it wasn't the Triune God.
After two mystical encounters with the evil spirit Zarathustra, the dark prophet Nietzsche announced the "death of the Christian God." Dubbing himself the Antichrist, Nietzsche proclaimed:
"The greatest recent event – that 'God is dead,' that the belief in the Christian God has ceased to be believable – is even now beginning to cast its first shadows over Europe; however, few really understood " what has really happened here, "and what must collapse now that this belief has been undermined – all that was built upon it, leaned on it, grew into it; for example, our whole European morality." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 433)
Men have murdered the Triune God and usurped His throne, thus today we are living in the days of de Sades, Nietzsches, Marx's and Callicles 'god-men' of violence who, ecstatic with the voluptuous delight of destruction which rolls humans into satanic depths keep pushing society to the brink of social chaos and suicide:
“When two-parent, heterosexual families are presented as the norm in story after story, near [year] in and year out, an insidious message is conveyed: Families that don’t conform to this structure are not normal.”
“The Modern Liberal will invariably (and) inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. When I say the Modern Liberal is morally and intellectually retarded at the level of the five-year old child, it is not hyperbole: its diagnosis.” (Evan Sayet, The Kindergarten of Evil, evansayet.com)
In his poem "The Second Coming," Yeats reveals the murderous delight of de Sade's, Nietzsche's, Marx's, and Callicles modern offspring:
"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are
Full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand."
The Wrath of God
According to John MacArthur, things are falling apart because God has abandoned our society on a wide scale. The moral chaos and confusion we experience in our nation happens because God has removed His restraining grace on a wide scale and given sinners over to their own choices and the consequences of those choices. No Scripture more directly confronts this abandonment and its consequences than Romans 1 does. Here is the most graphic and the most comprehensive discussion of what it means to be abandoned by God. God’s wrath is already at work in our culture. We’re not waiting for it, we are currently experiencing it.
The first indication in a society of the wrath of abandonment is sexual immorality (vs. 24). When a society becomes pornographic, this wrath is in effect. When men and women are abandoned by God, lusts dominate their hearts, leading to impurity, and the bodies follow in most dishonorable ways.
Step two is in verse 26. “For this reason God gave them over…here’s the second step…to degrading passions.” Now degradation enters the picture. The degrading passions can be defined as gross affections, vile desires, perversion, or even inversion. Plain and simple, lesbianism, homosexuality. When a society exalts homosexuality, lesbianism and sodomy, it is sinking deeper.
Verse 27 adds, “In the same way, also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another…men with men, committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error." What is the due penalty of their error? That they receive venereal disease, AIDS. That’s going to escalate, too, in this wrath of abandonment.
The third step is in verse 28. “Just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer…" God gave them over to a depraved mind.” What is a depraved mind? The word literally means tested and found useless, disqualified for its intended purpose, a non-functioning mind. Reasoning is so corrupted that it is crippled. The intellectual faculty can no longer function because the conscience is depraved. The moral law of God written in the heart has been literally stomped and replaced with cultural immorality. And so, says verse 28, they do the things which are not proper, not moral. So immorality goes in every direction and now they can’t find their way back because the mind is so corrupt. People don’t think right. People’s brains don’t follow the paths that they should. They advocate all the wretched things and depreciate all the virtuous things. And what flows out of this pornographic, homosexual, depraved culture? All evil…verse 29, “All unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice, gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful inventors of evil.” They even come up with new forms of evil.
The wrath of God is already operating in our culture:
".....God has abandoned our society because our society has first abandoned God. There is no surer and no sadder evidence of a corrupted, wicked abandoned society than when that society will not tolerate anger against sin. Our society won’t tolerate anger against sin. Our society feeds on sin and wants no one to deny it its iniquities. And so, here we are under the wrath of God’s abandonment. It isn’t like it once was. Restraining grace has been pulled back and this society gets more immoral, more homosexual and more depraved every day. And why? The major reason is summed up in one statement. “We suppress the truth.” (When God Abandons a Nation: Romans 1:18-32, John MacArthur, Grace to You, August 20, 2006)
